Are you ecstatic about your hard-earned weight loss only to find extra skin hanging around? Do you have excess skin around your abdomen after giving childbirth?

The tummy tuck, or abdominoplasty, operation involves removing excess skin and fat around the waist leaving a well-placed incision low on the abdomen. Abdominoplasty, however, is not a substitute for weight loss. As the excess skin is pulled and removed altogether, a flatter abdomen will remain. Additional tightening of the abdominal muscles can provide even more dramatic contour improvement with abdominoplasty surgery, and liposuction can be added for a more sculpted look.

Are You a Good Candidate For a Tummy Tuck?

The following questions will help you determine if you are a good candidate for abdominoplasty:

Are you in good health? Are you NOT planning any more pregnancies? Is your weight stable? Do you have areas of loose skin that diet has not been able to solve after weight loss? If you can answer yes to these questions, we hope you will call us for a free consultation so we can better assess your body and set realistic goals together.

Commonly Asked Questions (FAQ’S)

Will I lose weight from my tummy tuck surgery?
The primary cosmetic benefit of a tummy tuck is the improved shape and contour of the abdomen, not weight loss. However, some patients do lose weight, and the total weight loss will depend on the amount of skin and fat removed.

Is a tummy tuck included in a mommy makeover?
A tummy tuck and a breast lift or augmentation is what makes up a mommy makeover. We can also discuss this during your free consultation if you are considering either implants or a breast lift.

How long do tummy tuck results last?
Your results can last as long as you maintain your current weight.

Will a tummy tuck remove stretch marks?
In some cases, yes. We will be able to best determine this in your free consultation.
